Data Extended Description: 
The Global Runoff Data Centre is an International data centre operating under the auspices of the World Meteorological Organization (WMO). Established in 1988 to support the research on global and climate change and integrated water resources management, the GRDC has been serving for twenty years successfully as a facilitator between the producers of hydrologic data and the international research community. GRDC is a key partner in a number of data collection and data management projects on a global scale. Its primary objective consists in supporting the water and climate related programmes and projects of the United Nations.
